10/12/16 Branch Lake


Fifties and mostly sunny with little wind. Drought here continues so we headed for sure water at Branch Lake.

There were colorful leaves


and a muddy little stream for Kelley


There was also lots to sniff so we started off slowly.


Bog bridges in the usually wet woods



Branch lake with it's rocky shore


 Kelley finds ways through the rocks


Another section of shore




Large fungus - 10 or 12 inches across


Another section of the loop trail


 In some places the leaves were falling with the pine needles



One more muddy spot just before we finished 


                     
A beautiful day and a nice hike. Kelley did well and we had the place to ourselves until we met a couple as we were finishing our hike 1 /34 hours

    1. Hi- I try to plan for a clean water op near the end but it doesn't always work- They have to use their incredible noses
